Looking for something unique?

Then we can offer ceremonies either outside in the Japanese Azumaya or in our stunning Garden Pavilion, (based on the Katsura Imperial Pavilion, Kyoto) both of which overlook the central island and ornamental pond.

At The Japanese Garden at Cowden, we can provide an intimate and beautiful small wedding venue to suit your needs. Submerse yourself in the ancient trees and the unique beauty of a traditional Japanese garden set in the Scottish countryside. Have your ceremony in our Azumaya overlooking the tranquil pond or in our Garden Pavilion with a view out towards the Scottish Ochil hills. Spend the evening exploring the grounds and enjoy a drinks reception and buffet in the Garden Pavilion.
